Well, it was crashing.

I managed to get a hold of this board that seemed to be freezing and lock up for no reason. The pictures show what I found and how I fixed it.

(if you can see it) basically one of the memory sockets went bad. You can see that it's cracked and thusly not all the pins are contacting the memory module that is in it.

My fix was too use an old piece of fuel line tubing from my RC car. (as you can see in the pic.

Now I just need a couple of zeon CPU's!! ( err and some memory )

Ooo, what kind of car, and what kind of engine does that run? A .15? I've got a .46 (RC plane) in my Big Stik.

Heh, just wanted to know what you were driving (via remote, at least). Sorry if I seem crazy, it's just my way sometimes.

Sorry bud, didn't catch that.

It's a Mammoth ST RTR. Nice little fast sucker. I've done a couple of slight mods too it. Like add a new set of street tires and new gears in the tranny as well as the main drive. (check out the pic)

Like all hobby's they are fun, but expensive. You can see my other thread about it here.

**EDIT**
And to answer your question it's a 24.7 engine.

I've been meaning to post this. This is the board that I did the "fix" too. Now I just need a couple of Xeon cpu's (anyone got a hook up?)

Can't wait for it to run! I'm thinking a server box as I kinda wanna starting having small lan's in my garage.
